Don't expect, or worry, about huge changes to Superman's origin. He is still sent to earth by his father Jor-El to save his life, but there are some different reasons as to the why. In Man of Steel, children of Krypton are genetically engineered to be something specific. Kal-El (Superman) becomes infamous for being a child that was conceived naturally, allowing him to choose his own path in life. But it also means his existence is against the law.
They also offer a little on the armor we've seen on Zod and Jor-El in preview images, pointing out that kryptonians normally wear armor over a tight undersuit. So, Superman really is flying around in his underwear!
Nolan and Snyder have also created a world where other heroes could be introduced more easily than they could have in Nolan's more closed world of The Dark Knight.
It’s setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward. In that, Man of Steel is definitely a first step. [Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight movies] were deliberately and smartly positioned as a standalone. The world [the films] lived in was very isolated without any knowledge of other superheroes. What Zack and Chris have done with this film is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.
EW also verified that Nolan would not be working on Justice League, putting an end (perhaps) to the rumors that popped up a month or so ago. This reporter looks forward to a message from his editor later stating "I told you so" about the site I used as a source for that story.
